Along the way to Namibia

A travel blog entry by whk2006

The first day on the road with G.A.P. overland truck! Nothing much has scheduled today for sightseeing, since we just drove north, stopped somewhere for a night before we reach South Africa/Namibia border.

... hostel where we were to have a traditional South African dinner cooked by our host. We had a while before dinner so we went outside in the yard and played ultimate frisbee in the dark with a light up frisbee.
